Delicious, low-carb and sugar-controlled recipes, for all the family to enjoy. When Vickie De Beer's son's life changed forever, she and leading paediatric dietician Kath Megaw set about The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics - and, in the process, developed an arsenal of the most effective systems and day-to-day strategies for dealing with diabetes. Part emotive journey, part cookbook and part medical reference, this book begins with information about diabetes, what it is, how to recognize Type 1 and 2 diabetes and what medicines are used to control the symptoms. Combined findings - at once personal and professional, and essential reading that effectively 'closes the gap' for families coping with diabetes. Followed by delicious recipes, Vickie's meals are simple to shop for, effortless to prepare and, above all, packed with all the essential nutrients growing bodies and minds need for optimal health. Grouped seasonally and covering all days of the week, from Monday through Sunday (and t forgetting, sauces, treats and drinks), The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics offers a wide array of choices for every meal of the day and to satisfy all those hunger pangs in between - a happy solution for both busy moms and even busier kids!
